Shenandoah is a beautiful, historically-rich neighborhood located just south of Little Havana and west of Downtown Miami. The neighborhood roughly spans from SW 8th Street (Calle Ocho) to the north to Coral Way to the south, between SW 27th Avenue and SW 12th Avenue.The neighborhood is made up almost entirely of historic single-family homes and duplexes. Aside from the (surprisingly) well maintained historic homes in the neighborhood, the neighborhood is also conveniently located between two major commercial centers- Miracle Mile and Downtown/Brickell. Shenandoah has gone through immense changes throughout its history, quickly changing demographics in the mid 20th century. It was around this time that the newly arrived Cubans began replacing the non-Hispanic White population, who moved to points north and south of here. The southern area of Shenandoah has still retained a small Greek community, evident in the Greek restaurants and church in the area. The neighborhood is safe and walkable. Despite being in the center of the city, is very quiet and peaceful. Walking around Shenandoah you’ll notice a lot of historic architectural gems. Some of my favorite buildings in the neighborhood are the Shenandoah Middle School, with its Neo-Classical façade and the Saints Peter and Paul Orthodox Church, originally built in 1927 as the mansion of Miami’s first mayor, John Bernard Reilly. Then there’s also the eclectic mix of architectural styles in the homes in Shenandoah- Bungalow, Miami Pioneer, Neo-Classical, Mission and Modern. The neighborhood also has a strong feeling of community. The public schools, parks and library in the neighborhood are easily walkable from the homes in the area. Walking around really is pleasant. My favorite park in the neighborhood, and quite possibly one of Miami’s most monumentally rich parks, is the “Cuban Memorial Boulevard Park” located along SW 13th Avenue from SW 8th Street (Calle Ocho) to Coral Way. The park passes through 17 city blocks, with each block featuring a monument, statue, flag or tree memorializing a moment of Cuba and/or Miami’s history. As you walk from Calle Ocho down to Coral Way along this shady park you’ll notice the subtle changes in the neighborhood. Don’t be surprised if someone sparks up a conversation along the way, people in Shenadoah are nice! (website hidden)

Our accommodation at Gloria's has been very pleasant with no problems whatsoever. Place was clean, showers and wi-fi were in order. We didn't have time to cook, but the kitchen looked fully equipped. Good place to spend day/night during your stay in Miami.
Muito boa experiência, Glória nos passou todas as informações com riqueza de detalhes e ocorreu tudo conforme previsto. Foi tudo muito bom.
Instructions and communication were excellent. House was spotless. My room was spotless. Bathroom was sizable with plenty of hot water. The location is excellent. The neighborhood was charming. All in all an incredible value.
Gloria's house is perfect if you are looking for a place to sleep and you don't mind interacting with other guests in the house. It's in a good location close to Calle 8! Overall it was a good experience!
Host called to check on when we would arrive and make arrangements with us. Went out of her way to provide extra rollaway bed and sheets. There were 5 total rooms in the house, all rented out and not all of the visitors were courteous--playing music til well after midnight with their bedroom doors open and leaving dark hair from grooming all over the bathroom sink and counter. This was NOT the fault of the host and the bathrooms were clean when we arrived but a few hours and some people's mustache-trimming party later...
A dog next dog next door (on my side of the home) was barking and baying til after midnight so I had trouble getting to sleep even with earplugs in.
It was an excellent experience. Services were good, place was nice and clean, and the host always on top of our requests at anytime. I definitely recommend it to you!!!

About the Host, Gloria
Hi, we are two working professionals, I'm a LPN and work in Hospice and my husband Eurys is an psychiatric RN. We are both long time residents of Miami. We will be glad to give you suggestions for restaurants and fun things you can do around town. I recommend you download a couple of apps that will be useful. Waze for traffic, it gives you real time information on traffic and accidents, updated in real-time by users. Yelp for local restaurants. Also if you are an international traveler and you want to text us, WhatsApp is great for texting. If you will be using public transportation, familiarize yourself with routes on the Miami Dade Transit Website. Lyft and Uber are now in Miami! Use code EURYS2 when you download app to get free ride credit on Lyft (credit varies). If you need CAR RENTAL, look at relay rides website. If you choose to stay at one of our locations, you will get a good value for your money. We offer clean and very centrally located listings for a fraction of the cost of a hotel in the same area. However if you are looking for a luxury, this is not the place. We offer basic lodging for the money conscious traveler. Let us know your time of arrival time and we will definitely try our best to meet you there but we offer self-check in at most of the listings. If we are unable to meet you there we will give you detailed instructions and always are available via the messenger. I recommend every airbnb guest to read the full description of the listing and the reviews so you know what to expect and to make sure that the listing will meet your needs.
